Ingredients
  1. 8 oz tomato sauce
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  4. 1/2 tbsp ground black pepper
  5. 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  6. 1/2 tbsp ground mustard
  7. 1 tsp smoked paprika
  8. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  9. 1 jalepeño (remove ribs and seeds)
Instructions
  1. Add the apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and jalepeño to a blender. Puree.
  2. Add tomato sauce, water, black pepper, onion powder, mustard and paprika to a sauce pan and mix well.
  3. Add jalepeño puree mix to the other ingredients in the sauce pan. Bring to a boil.
  4. Simmer for 1 hour.
Notes
  1. For a thicker sauce, consider substituting tomato paste for the tomato sauce. This sauce has a nice spicy flavor and can be used on LOTS of other stuff. I think it would be a perfect sauce for baked hand-cut sweet potato fries! YUM!
  2. Please note that the smoked paprika is a very important ingredient in this recipe. Substituting regular paprika will not yield the same results or hearty, smoky flavor.
  3. Serve with extra napkins and enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 4 lbs pork ribs
  2. 1 tbsp sea salt
  3. 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  4. 1 tbsp garlic powder
  5. 1 tbsp onion powder
  6. 1 tbsp chili powder
  7. 2 tsp ground black pepper
  8. 1 tsp cumin
Instructions
  1. Mix all dry seasonings in a small ramekin. Stir until fully combined.
  2. Lay out a large sheet of aluminum foil and place pork ribs in the center. Make sure you have enough foil to fully wrap the ribs with little to no leaks. (But don’t wrap them yet!)
  3. Rub the seasonings all over the ribs.
  4. Wrap the ribs up in tin foil and let marinate for 3+ hours. Ribs can be marinated overnight if desired.
  5. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  6. Place ribs on the center rack and bake for 1 hour, turning ribs every 30 minutes or so.
  7. Turn up oven temp to 375 degrees F and bake for additional 1 hour and 45 minutes. Be sure to turn ribs every 30 minutes or so.
  8. Unwrap ribs from tin foil and bake another 10 minutes so that ribs get brown.
Notes
  1. Please note that the smoked paprika is a very important ingredient in this recipe. Substituting regular paprika will not yield the same results or hearty, smoky flavor.
  2. Serve with extra napkins and enjoy!

    Sounds good, but no sweetener at all? Can’t you use 1 tbsp honey (per person/day) in paleo? Why not do that and sweeten it up a bit?

      Hey Adam,

      Yes you could use some honey if you prefer. I happen to like a more savory sauce instead of sweet. If you give it a try with the honey please let us know what you think!

      Cheers,
      Katie
